June 8, 2018—American Public Health Association (APHA) Organizations’ letter to U.S. Congress Appropriations Committee leaders in support of strong investments in antimicrobial resistance in FY 2019 appropriations bills using ONE HEALTH APPROACH - Saturday, July 07, 2018

June 8, 2018—American Public Health Association (APHA) Organizations’ letter to U.S. Congress Appropriations Committee leaders in support of strong investments in antimicrobial resistance in FY 2019 appropriations bills using ONE HEALTH APPROACH

 SEE: https://goo.gl/kaai5a

3rd paragraph,

“The report also highlights the need for continued and robust funding for AMR given that nationwide testing last year documented 221 cases of so-called “nightmare bacteria,” that can spread resistance to last-resort antibiotics. Robust, sustained investment in multi-agency One Health efforts is vital to combat AMR domestically and globally including prevention, antimicrobial stewardship, surveillance and data collection, research, and development of urgently needed new products including antimicrobial drugs, diagnostics, vaccines and alternative treatments.”

 

11th paragraph,

“Food and Drug Administration and US Department of Agriculture Experts agree that a One Health approach, including both human and animal health, is essential for combating antimicrobial resistance. We urge funding of $54 million for the Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria initiative at FDA to support FDA’s efforts to address public health concerns associated with antimicrobial drug use in animals, and better protect antibiotic effectiveness for both human and animal populations. This funding is needed now more than ever, with estimates that antibiotic use in humans and livestock will rise by 50% before 2030. FDA would be able to better collaborate with consumers, producers, veterinarians, and other agencies to monitor AMR through the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) as well as other initiatives by the FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine to address AMR.”

This “Advancing Emergency Preparedness Through One Health Act of 2018 (S.2615)” One Pager - Call to Action was prepared by a voluntary ad hoc committee of representative One Health advocate-leaders... - Wednesday, April 18, 2018

One Health is the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines working locally, nationally, and globally to attain optimal health for people, animals, plants and our environment.

One Health implementation will help protect and/or save untold millions of lives in our generation and for those to come.

 Between animal and human medicine there are no dividing lines--nor should there be.  The object is different but the experience obtained constitutes the basis of all medicine.”

A world-renowned group of ten experts http://deohs.washington.edu/cohr/cohere-expert-review-group contributed to the design of the newly-reported Checklist for One Health Epidemiological Reporting of Evidence (COHERE), recently published by the journal One Health http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2352771417300022.  This tool consists of a set of 19 standards for components that should be included in the conduct and reporting of One Health studies that use observational or interventional epidemiological designs.  It also aims to promote the concept that One Health studies should integrate data from humans, animals, and their environment.  Therefore, experts were included to represent aspects of all three of these domains.

“The expert participants' perspectives enriched the tool by the very nature of addressing their experiences across disciplines,” noted Dr. Lisa A. Conti https://goo.gl/MLVRk1, a veterinarian member of the One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono team www.onehealthinitiative.com, the 2017 recipient of the prestigious American Veterinary Epidemiology Society’s (AVES) KF Meyer/James H. Steele Gold Headed Cane Award https://goo.gl/3yaCpK, and internationally recognized One Health leader, who was a co-author on the manuscript.   Dr. Conti added, “...their thoughtful consideration of a unified approach was critical to refining the tool.”  Inclusion of many experts in the process was essential to make the tool flexible to researchers who represent a wide variety of professions and disciplines.

The authors of the manuscript and the expert review group agreed that COHERE should be a living document—one that could be amended to respond to the inclusion of new disciplines, technologies, and ideas. They encourage editors, reviewers, authors, and readers of the One Health literature to contact the COHERE team with suggestions.
